Effie's story...

Hi my name is Effie. I’m a 5 year old female Chihuahua/Terrier mix who was saved from being euthanized at a California shelter where my owners took me when they lost their home. That was the saddest day of my life. But now that I am in a loving foster home here in Canada, I couldn’t be happier. I may be small but I have enough love and kisses to match any big dog. I will look up at you adoringly and close my eyes with pure joy when you pet me. I love being loved and giving love. Snuggling on your lap is one of my favorite things.

My foster mom says I am very eager to please. By my second day I had already settled in with my foster family and my new foster brother Max. I’m enjoying the freedom of a big backyard to run around in and playing with my new toys. I’ll play fetch with you but I don’t always give you the ball back, sometimes it is just fun letting you chase me for it. I am housebroken and I like going for walks, but I need a little more help with heeling. I have very good manners and get along well with all adults as well as teenagers. No one knows how well I’ll interact with younger children because I haven’t met any yet. I am not so good with cats though who I seem afraid and will bark at to try and scare them off.

I’ve had all my shots, am neutered and recently had my teeth cleaned. I may be small, only 10 pounds, but I have a big bark if someone comes in my yard and I don’t know them. But I only bark for protection reasons – oh yeah and at cats. I love my people and want to keep them safe. I’m really excited about meeting my forever family and beginning my new life, where I will never be abandoned again. My adoption fee is $350.
